4 new metro stations on Line 10 open tomorrow

METRO Line 10 will open its four-stop section leading to the Hongqiao integrated traffic hub tomorrow, after a successful 10-day trial.

Travelers to and from the Hongqiao International Airport and Hongqiao Railway Station should experience less congested journeys as a result.

The four stops include the stations of Shanghai Zoo, Hongqiao Airport Terminal 1, Hongqiao Airport Terminal 2 and Hongqiao Railway Station.

"With this important stretch going into service, Line 10 is expected to help divert traffic from the Hongqiao traffic hub area and also to relieve pressure on Metro Line 2, which also runs to the area," said Lan Tian, a Metro management official.

Line 10 runs from the city's northeast to its southwest part, starting at the Xinjiangwan Station in the north. Near its southern section, Line 10 splits in two, heading to different terminals - Shanghai Zoo Station and Hangzhong Road Station.

Passengers should pay attention when traveling on the "Y-shaped" service to avoid boarding trains heading in the wrong direction, Metro management said yesterday.

"Passengers traveling south should listen carefully to public announcements and check information screens to decide which train to board," Lan said.

Passengers making a mistake can get off at any stop on the stretch between Xinjiangwan Road and Longxi Road stations and wait for the correct train. The Longxi Road Station is the last stop before the route splits.

"Passengers may find transfers at the Longxi Road Station a bit more complicated. We suggest they read the help signs there clearly. If southbound travelers go in the wrong direction at this station, they will have to travel all the way back to change to the right train," Lan said.

The opening times on Line 10 will also be slightly extended from Tuesday. Trains will start leaving from the three terminuses between 5:30am and 5:55am and services will end at these stations between 9:55pm and 10pm every day.
